Each jar was about the same size and easy to find in most grocery stores.The 15.5-ounce jar of peanut butter cost me $3.69 at my local grocery store in Brooklyn, New York.Going into the taste test, my roommate had informed me that Jif was her favorite brand of peanut butter growing up. I had high hopes for this brand, but it simply didn't live up to expectations.I would turn out to be exactly right.It definitely didn't taste bad, but it just didn't have the levels of sweet and salty that I look for in peanut butter. Even my roommate agreed that, after trying it as an adult, it wasn't as good as she remembered it.The 16.3-ounce jar cost $3.99 at my local grocery store, which I thought was a decent price.It looked chalky and grainy, not creamy like the other brands.Though admittedly a little bland, the flavor of the peanut butter was perfectly acceptable. The texture, on the other hand, was just a little thick for my liking. I would have liked it to be a little more easily spreadable, and just a touch more flavorful. A 16.3-ounce jar cost me $3.59, making it the cheapest brand I tried. Nostalgia aside, I definitely enjoy this peanut butter despite having the slight criticism of it being too sweet. If you're looking for a cheap and easy spread for toast or a peanut butter and jelly, Skippy might fit the bill. However, I do agree with those who've called Skippy a little too sweet and not balanced enough for an adult palette. A 16-ounce jar of Smart Balance creamy peanut butter costs $4.99, making it significantly more expensive than the other brands. This peanut butter had a delightfully creamy, spreadable texture.It tasted roasted, and the saltiness of the peanut butter was perfectly balanced. This definitely tasted like an adult's peanut butter, not like frosting, which the Skippy peanut butter reminded me of.I even liked the slight oiliness of the peanut butter. I thought it added a whole other flavor profile to each and every spoonful.I've never even tried Smart Balance peanut butter before — and now I have a new favorite brand.
